January 31, 2018: Favorable Choices

I didn’t care to watch the State of the Union address last night. I usually make the effort, watch part of it every year, but this time around I wanted no part of it. There’s no point to watch someone repeat the same restrictive policies and false promises that we’ve heard him say all yearContinue reading “January 31, 2018: Favorable Choices”

January 30, 2018: Ordinary Morning

I slept much better last night, and I’m so relieved about that. Since I’m going to be at work until 7:30 tonight, I need all the energy today. A new day to set up curriculum for next month, and managing toddlers. Keeps me busy. 😊 Still waiting to hear back from a close friend fromContinue reading “January 30, 2018: Ordinary Morning”

January 29, 2018: Unexpected Lows

This morning began a bit strange, since I got very little sleep the night before. It wasn’t until I was still lying awake at 2am that I checked my blood sugar level, and discovered a low. I tried to bring my levels back up, but they remained low well into the early morning hours. IContinue reading “January 29, 2018: Unexpected Lows”

January 28, 2018: Reflection

Today I spent some time seeking peace within, since stress has begun sneaking into my life once more. As much as I try to keep calm, every now and then worries and doubt try to slip in. During mass this afternoon, I reached out to seek inner peace, to quiet down the waves of doubtContinue reading “January 28, 2018: Reflection”

January 27, 2018: Connections

This afternoon I took some much needed time for myself. I took care of my hair, making the trip to maintain the color. I reconnected with the hair stylist I previously visited a couple years back, and I’m so relieved that I did so. It’s refreshing to see someone who truly pays attention to yourContinue reading “January 27, 2018: Connections”

January 26, 2018: A Break in the Routine

It’s relieving to reach the end of the work week. I had a relaxing dinner and drinks with my fiance. He was sick for most of the week, and today was the first time he could get out and explore without feeling under the weather. I was happy to spend that time with him. ItContinue reading “January 26, 2018: A Break in the Routine”

January 25, 2018: Special Day

Today is my cousin’s 25th birthday. It seems like she’s having an amazing day, and I’m glad about that. I’m very hopeful that I’ll be able to see her soon, since my cousin is tough to pin down for very long. She’s a strong minded, free-spirited person, an amazing quality to have in life. IContinue reading “January 25, 2018: Special Day”

January 24, 2018: Running Thoughts

I shouldn’t be stressing over things so much, yet I find myself again with a mind racing over things that haven’t happened yet. Even though things will most likely work out, there’s always the ‘worst case’ scenarios playing out in my head. This situation involves my family…my fiancé and I are having both families gatherContinue reading “January 24, 2018: Running Thoughts”

January 23, 2018: Endless Cycle

Another school shooting has taken place in our country. This time at a high school in Kentucky. Children killing children, while we all move on with our lives: the latest trends, what movies were the best in 2017, what shows we’re going to watch tonight. School shootings are so commonplace in the US that itContinue reading “January 23, 2018: Endless Cycle”

January 22, 2018: My Tribe

My Timehop from a year ago featured posts from a poetry therapy group I attended in Manhattan. At that time, it was the first group I took part of in months, since it was difficult trying to navigate heading to NYC after returning to New Jersey. As I mentioned before, I hold NYC dear toContinue reading “January 22, 2018: My Tribe”
